I don't know which winery you are talking about. Sigalas? SAFOWI is a wine tour company. We are not a winery.

Is this also a great way to see the island or really just about the food and wine?

She picked us up in her car and drive around and gave us a little history so we did see parts we wouldn't have seen but it is not also a tour of the island
